NEW LINKEDIN FEATURE: LinkedIn Active Status Creates Real-Time Conversations

I am so excited to share with you this new, fabulous feature that LinkedIn is rolling out called LinkedIn Active Status. When you log into LinkedIn you will see this image:

You will see a green circle next to a profile picture in your message center when someone is on LinkedIn right now, and if they are on the LinkedIn mobile app, it will show up as a green circle with a white dot in the middle.

Why is the new LinkedIn Active Status feature so exciting? We can have conversations in real-time. This is a massive improvement to how we communicate and when to communicate on LinkedIn.

1. Click through to your message center.
2. View the headshot image of the people you have messaged, and if the green dot is showing, they are currently online and active.
3. Send a message now and there is a very high likelihood that you are going to get a quick response.

LinkedIn Active Status Privacy & Settings:

By default, The Active Status feature is on for everyone. I recommend that you keep this on all of the time. It’s will make it so much easier for your connections to get access to you in real-time and for you to communicate back and forth. That being said, here is how you can turn-off the setting and go into a “do not disturb” option.
